Everyone should go thrift store shopping. What have you got to lose? What I like is finding these items that are not my usual buy, they tend to be in a color (like shocking pink) or shape (a flare at the pants bottoms) I avoid. They cost only a few dollars and when brought home they become a delightful surprise that are often worn or they go back to the thrift store. The latter is my lost of only a few dollars and I have now given that item and a stranger the opportunity to be a part of a winning combination. So it is a win-win for all. Got to like those odds.
Go gambling. Find a wining combination. Lift yourself and someone else up.
